While I love PayPal, I have had nothing but trouble with the app for months now. It absolutely will not open on my phone. It is up to date, it just glitches out every time I try to open it. The website works but the app just does not. It's a problem! In response, I have cleared the cache, checked for updates, uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail.

To me this is the absolute best and safest way to perform any sales or person-to-person financial transactions! There is also a "PayPal in 4" opportunity that allows you to make a purchase today and pay it off within 4 installments, with no interest. This can be helpful if payday is maybe a week or two away. The money would be withdrawn from a debit or credit card, or linked financial account. Reputable sellers allow PayPal, and in doing so fills out shipping destinations. Never had any problem.

More than half the time if you have an account connected, you are unable to send money, and if you talk to customer service, they say they fixed the issue, but lie to you, cause it's still not fixed, iv tried sending money from PayPal to my card, cash at store, and bank account, and it won't allow any of them, even though I verified my account and everything, I can't recommend this app at all!
